GOA TRAIL RUN: ARAMBOL, SUNDAY 15 DECEMBER 2019

ABOUT US

The Goa Trail Run is a completely off-the-road Run | Walk event. Participants run through dirt trails and grasslands in wild, uninhabited terrain. They see nature at its finest. Calls of peacocks and cries of lapwings serenade them as they run to the finish.

This first-of-its-kind Trail Run is not deep in the state’s interiors. It is at Arambol, in Goa's acclaimed tourist heartland beach belt.

The concept behind the Goa Trail Run is to use, appreciate, enjoy and preserve areas of urban wilderness. In a world that is fast becoming concretised, these 'lungs' preserve not just the environment, but the physical and mental health and well-being of the residents of the area.

There are two races — 10K and 21K (Half Marathon). There's also the 5K Fun Run (a short route of 5km). Participants can run, walk, or even amble along, stopping to take in the fabulous views. They have a full three-and-a-half hours to complete the distance 10K distance (5 hours for 21K). Reporting time is at 6:15am on Sunday 15 December 2019. The location of the assembly point will be communicated in the Instructions for Participants, 10 days before the event.

There are two categories — Open (18+) and Veteran (45+) — with medals and prizes for the first three men and women in the Open and Veteran category. Students get a concession on entry fee (ID card from an educational institution required), but they compete in the Open Category. All participants get Finisher Medals and online certificates. Online registration is open till 23:55hrs on Sunday 8 December 2019. No spot registration will be allowed.
